11th in the classical music Chart
That was very interesting. I listened to all of this program. There were pieces by Antheil that I have never heard before, so thank you. I have covered a number of his works on my program (especially Ballet Mecanique). Are you aware of the story of Antheil's association with Hollywood actress Hedy Lamar? Incredibly, they developed a patent together during World War Two on a radio-directed torpedo using a piano keyboard to conduct the encoded instructions to the torpedo. The US Navy was totally incredulous when they saw it and could not believe it would work. Much later this technology was further developed into the random frequency coding used for communications today.
Thanks for listening and your comments. That’s how I discoveted Antheil’s work, I saw a Bio od Hedy Lamar y sus descubrimients
